Last week, new state Sen. Ana Maria Rodriguez, R- Doral, weighed in on her duties as the chairwoman of the Miami Dade Legislative Delegation, the largest in the Florida Legislature.
First elected to the Florida House in 2018, last year Rodriguez was elected to the state Senate. At the start of last month, she was unanimously selected to lead the Miami-Dade delegation. State Rep. Dotie Joseph, D-North Miami, will serve as the vice chairwoman.
“My sincerest gratitude and appreciation to my Miami Dade County Legislative Delegation colleagues for unanimously choosing me to serve as 2021 chair,” Rodriguez said on Friday. “I look forward to representing the citizens of Miami Dade alongside Vice Chair Dotie Joseph.”
Rodriguez represents all of Monroe County and parts of Miami Dade. From 2010 through 2018, she served on the Doral City Commission and served as vice mayor in 2017 and 2018.
Despite being new to the Senate, Rodriguez chairs the Finance and Tax Committee and is the vice chairwoman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services.
